Your skin is 64% water, yet most of us are chronically dehydrated which causes skin damage and premature aging.
Water is the secret to youthful skin, but are you drinking enough?
BEAUTY BENEFITS OF WATER
Plumps up your skin and helps to fill in fine lines and wrinkles
Flushes out toxins in your body, giving you a radiant complexion
Replenishes important skin structures like collagen to keep your skin firm and smooth
Increases your skin’s elasticity, improving it’s ability to stretch and snap back to its original shape
Improves dry, flaky skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema
Decreases the concentration of oil on your skin, reducing breakouts and clogged pores
Hydrated skin is less likely to crack and let in bacteria and particles that cause irritations and blemishes
HOW TO DRINK MORE WATER
Aim to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day. You’ll know you’re drinking enough water when the color of your urine is very pale yellow.
Drink a glass of water first thing in the morning because your body becomes dehydrated after a long night’s sleep.
Drink water before meals, after bathroom breaks, and in between every cocktail.
Carry a water bottle with you everywhere. For extra motivation, use a water bottle with a time marker like this.
Make your water tastier by adding fresh fruit or sugar-free flavoring.
Drink sparkling water instead of soda when you’re craving something fizzy.
For extra hydration, dilute sugary drinks with water and ice.
If you’re a techie, use an app to track how much water you drink.
